Hi, Ricky...thanks so much for replying to me. So very sorry that you, too are, in the same situation as me. It sucks, actually. I'm about to go to bed now, so tired after today's hassles...just want to bury my head in a book, then crash, if I can. Think some melatonin for me tonight...I will get in touch via pm tomorrow. Know also, that I am happy to offer a shoulder and an ear whenever you need one. Life's pretty damn hard on the occaisions that we have to do it alone. take care,

bec

Hi all ,
Good to see we are fighting fit and at the gym exercising ha bloody haha ? I went to see my pain specialist last week to arrange some nerve ablutions in my lumbar ,she calmly suggested I go and see the sporting people at the pain clinic in the Wesley Hospital WEEEELL when I finally stopped laughing ? and was able to speak coherently I explained to her that exercise makes me fall asleep the last time I did upper bod exercise for about a half an hour I slept for two hours.
Getting out of bed walking to the kitchen is sometimes the limit she opted not to send me

With all the frustrations going around at the moment with the anti-opiod stance, I thought this one might need a bump too.

The anti opioid stance is alive and working in Sth. Aust. My GP was told her medical insurance would be affected and they denied approval of an opiate prescription for a temporary condition that had failed to resolve itself in the so called 'allowed' 3 month period. Sorry, I did not heal up in the time the rules say. Needless to say, it is going to be tough to get through this next month. Plus the codeine embargo could not have come at a worse time. I fail to understand why people associate opiate medication for chronic pain with drug addiction. They are completely different things.

Had a bad reaction to another medication, insomnia, agitation, confused and disordered thinking, nausea, pain, dry mouth.

I only take meds when the pain is so bad even air touching my skin makes me cry.

How am I supposed to do anything? I haven’t been able to work the past year and a half because my symptoms are so bad but I’m 35 I need to be working, I have kids to support and care for, how do I do this when it’s so bad???
